. at the same time however, he has to make sure that, especially with the elections in the united states, obama's re-election and the fact that a possible military strike against iran seems like a distant -- ever more distant project, netanyahu has to burnish his military credentials and i think this at least air attack against gaza is a way to do that. >> so how does this end then? if it doesn't end with a ground war, how does it end? >> well, look, i think that the most likely scenario is that there is a cease-fire, hopefully brokered by the united states and egypt, and then we all go back to exactly where we were before. in a couple years we start this process all over again. at a certain point israel is going to have to recognize that hamas, whether it likes it or not, is the actual government in gaza, and it's going to have to figure out a long-term solution to maintaining a viable cease-fire and that might include actually easing the blockade against gaza. more importantly the palestinians themselves are being torn between two alternatives. there's the resistance and militant alternative
